[SR: 50433], Gebundene Ausgabe, [EAN: 9780002556460], HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, Book, [PU: HarperCollins Publishers Ltd], HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, With her latest biography Indira, Katherine Frank has chosen to grapple with the original Iron Lady of world politics. The result is a wonderfully convincing and balanced account of the life of Indira Gandhi, the mountain girl of Kashmir who rose to succeed her father, Jawaharlal Nehru, as prime minister of the world's largest democracy. A difficult childhood--her mother died early of tuberculosis and her father was frequently incarcerated by the British--saw her a frail, introverted child. Born in the same month as the Russian Revolution, she felt her life was linked to the trajectory of history, yet it took until her mid-40s, after her father had reached his dotage, for political conviction to grip her life. First sworn in as Prime Minister in 1966, she quickly achieved a revered, mythic status as the mother of the nation. In all, she held the post four times, three consecutively, the last occasion coming in 1980 at the age of 63, four years before she was gunned down by her Sikh bodyguard. The Nehrus believed passionately in a secular state and Indian "oneness": it made Gandhi's factionalist assassination grimly ironic. This is a book of death and its actions. In addition to Gandhi's parents and husband, her son Sanjay, a disreputable rascal on whom she doted damagingly, was to die in a plane crash, and his brother Rajiv was assassinated in 1991. Even the author lost her husband during the six years it took to research and write the book. A tenacious demagogue rather than an ideologue, Indira personalised Indian politics, her sway coming from the natural authority of a matriarch, yet she was demonised by Salman Rushdie in Midnight's Children for her Emergency which suspended democratic practice in India. Frank, though, in appraising her subject, asserts that she was typically "sincere and deluded", and while being guilty of hubris, was no megalomaniac. Arguably each generation of Nehrus lost something of the family's intellectual rigour, and the death of Rajiv was seen by many as the close of the dynasty. However, Priyanka Gandhi Varda, Indira's granddaughter, is said to harbour political ambition, so perhaps there will be further chapters to write. If so, they will prove addenda to this first-class biography, which deserves to be read for many years. --David Vincent, 56859011, Politiker, 56858011, Politiker & Persönlichkeiten, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 65412011, Indien, 65400011, Asien, 65140011, Geschichte, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 65608011, 20.

Quick shipping, 20 years in business. Satisfaction guaranteed. (8142-8142-1-2---11), Neubuch, Biography/Historical Personalities, In this beautifully written and engaging biography, Katherine Frank explores the personal and political fate of the leader of the world's largest democracy-ma woman who played a dominant role in the history of the twentieth century, and when it ended, was voted Woman of the Millennium. On the morning of 31 October 1984, as she walked through her garden, smiling, hands raised and palms pressed together in the traditional Indian namaste greeting, Indira Nehru Gandhi was assassinated by her own bodyguards. She died as she had lived, surrounded by men, yet isolated. It was a violent end to a life of epic drama. Brought up during an era which saw the rise of Indian nationalism, she was raised to be what her father, Jawaharlal Nehru, called ' a child of the revolution'-strong in body and mind, destined to play a political role in the creation and governing of an independent India. Despite her early reluctance to embrace this role, and despite, too, ill-health and a shy, self-contained personality, Indira would become one of history's most powerful and significant leaders, presiding over a huge, complex, religiously-riven and male-dominated country. Indira was India. Throughout childhood, love, marriage, imprisonment, mother-hood and a sequence of personal and family tragedies, her personal hopes and desires would be continually subsumed by the historical and political imperatives of her country. MEDIA REVIEWS: This engrossing biography captures the longings and loneliness of Mrs. G...It takes a biographer like Katherine Frank to redeem Mrs. G from the cloud of myth. And as she sets off to paraphrase the life of one of the 20th century's engrossingly enigmatic women, what emerges is a multidimensional story of power and paranoia, of love and longing, of suppressed sighs and unsolicited martyrdom. From day one, hers wasn't a normal life and it would remain so till the day the assassin's bullets put an end to it. The blossoming of Mrs. G, the he., [PU: HarperCollins]
